After a delay due to anchor Hallie Jackson getting ill and having to cancel her Monday, Nov. 15, 2021 debut of her NBC News Now streaming newscast, the show is now set to launch Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021.

NBC News confirmed to TVNewsMix that her show is set for premiere Nov. 17 at 5 p.m. eastern. Titled “Hallie Jackson Now,” the show is the latest to launch on NBC News’ streaming channel.

NBC News Now offers anchored coverage throughout the day, though largely with anchors who appear mainly on the streamer.

Jackson, on the other hand, anchors “Hallie Jackson Reports” on MSNBC and is also a Washington, D.C. based correspondent for the network, with her work appearing on “NBC Nightly News,” “Today” and other productions.

Her new two hour early evening newscast is the lead in for “Top Story with Tom Llamas,” NBC News Now’s 7 p.m. eastern newscast that launched in September 2021.

In addition to these shows, NBC News Now also offers a distinct morning newscast called “Morning News Now” as well as rolling coverage under the name “NBC News Now Live” and similar generic titles.

It also features repeats of “Nightly,” “Dateline” and other programming, including its own originals.

NBC News Now is a free, ad supported offering that’s available at the network’s website as well as via Peacock and numerous other streaming platforms.
